    /// Though they’re twins they work hard to express

    how they’re different through lifestyle and dress.

    One loves sun and fresh air,

    and she bleaches her hair,

    while her pale sister seems to fluoresce.

    Hey, they’re both clothed, they’re not in the woods and there’s no hanky panky going on.

    Are you certain the painter is French?

    Back in the day, one couldn’t gel the lens so they gelled the subject.

    Looks like somebody forgot to turn off the motion blur setting on his canvas.

    He couldn’t see past the tip of his nose. Or anything clearly, without his glasses.

    When inserting part of one picture into another make sure they have equal focus and lighting.

    Lost in thought, Gisele tried to button her pants, not realizing she was wearing a dress.

    Sister 2, they have always called her./

    It’s expected that she will defer/

    She’s vastly astuter/

    But her sister is cuter./

    And now she’s reduced to a blur…

    Virginia’s imaginary alter-ego, Vanessa, began to manifest herself so strongly that others swore they could see her.

    She enjoyed the rave much more than her sister did.

    The Bellelli Sisters (Giovanna and Giuliana Bellelli)

    Paste (including the quote marks) 

    "Category:Unfinished portraits" Wikimedia 

    (syntax supported by the Google, Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, Ecosia and Yandex search engines) in the browser address bar (or search for it using one of those search engines) and choose the first Category: found and once there find the text string Bellelli, and click its link for info and links that point to more info about this roughly jumbo envelope size painting. 

    Again, a larger strip image is shown by (Ctrl- or right-) clicking the image in Mr. Melcher’s MASTERPIECE #3325 (May 21, 2024) blog entry, accessible by the Check out the blog! box after the last comment, and using the dropdown menu (even larger, if you trim what’s after .png from the URL). I have added a comment there pointing to the blog entry with my comment and replies pointing to info about this artist I used to point to here. So far, 14 works by him have been used here (15 times, including a repeat), the July 14, 2022, strip being the prior (the repeat).

    Also, she was out of her depth in her field.

    I confess, that although I like most of Degas’ work, I’m not fond of this one. The girls eerily remind me of my ex-daughter-in-law. I didn’t care for her, either.

    At the uglier sister’s insistence/

    Degas accounted for distance/

    With a merciful blur./

    His portrayal of her/

    Is therefore a piéce de résistance..

    Looks like he ran out of Degas half way through.

    Be quiet – the both of you! Or I swear to god that I will stop this painting right now!

    You’d think that Degas would know how to use an F-Stop on his paintings.

    For Wednesday:

    Although she bleated a lot/

    He knew that his young bride was “hot”../

    In the honeymoon suite/

    When the act was complete/

    She ate seven tin cans on the spot!
